On Kodak sells Image Sensor Solutions business news story (69 comments in total)

Kodak had the world by its tail when they came out with the Kodak SLR 14mp pro camera. Then, they blew it when there was a system-wide problem. Kodak refused to repair the problem under warranty (…a normal customer service situation) and instead chose to try and charge pro photogs $700-$1000 to make the alteration. The majority of pros sold their cameras and the value of these camera dropped on the used market. Canon should be thankful, as the majority of the Kodak pros fled to Canon.
Subsequently, Kodak came out with the ‘new’ improved 14mp Kodak SLR-N which actually was a great camera. I still own mine.
Kodak’s next fatal error was to de-value their new SLR_N camera by stating that in 2 years, there would be no further upgrades to the software. Kodak bailed on their promise. The rest of the pros took off for greener pastures.
Like the Greeks of today, Kodak ended up carefully lining up both feet and both hands before shooting them all at the same time, metaphorically speaking.
